The grocery chain KIWI is launching their new uniforms, and to showcase these for the first time, they decided to put on a fashion show for over 5000 employees. I was heading the makeup team for the show, and to no surprise, it was all about green - sexy green!
Setting up backstage.
The skin was going to look sunkissed, and these Youngblood-products took care of that. The Mineral Radiance Moisture Tint in Radiance gave the skin a warm, healthy glow, and the Hi-Definition Powder helped mattifying unwanted shiny areas around the nose and centre of forehead. I have been loving this powder for a long long time.
These are the other products that we used. The MAC Lipglass in C-Thru and the Pro-Longwear Lip Pencil in Saunter (from the current ´Hey, Sailor!´- Collection) are great for creating a pale, nude lip. I like applying the lipgloss first, then filling in the redder areas with the pencil. That gives you more control of the colour.
This is Iza, flown in from Paris for this special occasion :)
Essie sponsored us with nail products. We used Nourish Me Intensive Hydration Base Coat, 'Mojito Madness' Nail Lacquer and Good To Go Rapid Dry Top Coat for this particular look.
The two Silje's! Silje the Makeup Artist took care of making 150 fingernails immaculately Mojito Madness- green.
One coat was enough to cover the nail perfectly, without streaks or anything!
These are the products that we used for the body. The St. Tropez Instant Glow Body Lotion made the skin nice and tanned, and the Estée Lauder Bronze Goddess Shimmer Lotion took care of the glowy radiance on all 30 bodies.
Assistant Helene in action :)
I didn´t get a picture of him, but my brother Stefan was stage manager at the show. I only found out the day before, when he mentioned on the phone he was preparing for a show in Stokke. "Stokke? I am also working on a show in Stokke tomorrow." :D
Final touch-ups in the line up.
The screens backstage gave us an idea of what it looked like from the other side. Amazing atmosphere, breakdancers opening the show, it was truly spectacular! Artists performing were Tone Damli Aaberge, Alexander With, Lido Lido, Vinni, Chris Medina and DJ Dan, to name a few. A couple even got married on stage!
Work done, group hug, then time for well deserved drinks!
